You also know that Nate is fun to hang with. You never know when his quiet personality will flip into a comedian. He laughs at his own jokes (among other things), and can do some pretty good impersonations. Nate also has many movie and tv lines committed to memory which he pull out at appropriate times to make everyone laugh.
And....you also know he is VERY creative and a Harry Potter fan. That's Nate's creativity at work in the photo above . . . and yes, it is Nate, not Harry. Have I mentioned how well he writes? For a sample of Nate's creative writing, read his blog.
This cute kindergartner may some day be teaching your children history (his absolute favorite subject) --- or geography, or spelling, or math. . . because he is currently a student at Winona State University where he is studying to be an elementary school teacher. An excellent choice of matching his gifts to his job!
Natey -- we love you and miss you lots, but we are also VERY excited you are living a dream by traveling in Europe!
Happy 21st Birthday!
